I'd like to get some other opinions on this. should I Have the alternator replaced at the same time as the pulley replacement. Is $200 more. I'm having my mechanic do the work as I am too busy and dont have the tool to remove the pulley (excuses).
Alternator works fine. If it's not broke don't fx it right?
This is on my 2004 sprinter 3500 174k. I don't know if the alternator is original or not.

Are you sure its the pulley/decoupler
I recently had a noise that continiude after shutdown which turned out to be the front bearing of the alternator
